Sequence Ravelled Out of Sound
I felt a Cleaving in my Mind --
As if my Brain had split --
I tried to match it -- Seam by Seam --
But could not make them fit.
The thought behind, I strove to join
Unto the thought before --
But Sequence ravelled out of Sound
Like Balls -- upon a Floor
Emily Dickinson (1864)
These words ring true of my ADD mind.
